The Modern Gentlemen
For the past decade, the Modern Gentlemen have been the voices behind the legendary Frankie Valli. Landon Beard, Todd Fournier and brothers Brian and Brandon Brigham have performed with the famed singer on some of the world’s biggest stages, from the Royal Albert Hall to “A Capitol Fourth.” The quartet, long unsung heroes of the music industry, has now stepped into the spotlight, taking on the sounds of Motown, pop, rock and doo wop.
Frankie Valli brought the group together and the gentlemen have taken years of experience to create their own, new sound influenced by musicians like Michael Bublé, the Four Freshmen and the Hi-Lo’s. The Modern Gentlemen have performed in “Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons: Tribute on Ice” with Brian Boitano and in “A Capitol Fourth,” where they joined singers Michael McDonald and Patti LaBelle. They have also appeared on stage with the Beach Boys, Tony Bennett, Smokey Robinson and Manhattan Transfer. They have performed for presidents and for Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, at the esteemed Arts Club in London. They were featured on a PBS special, “Doo Wop Generations” and have appeared as headliners in Las Vegas and at their own residence in Atlantic City.
The Modern Gentlemen features vocalist and California native Brian Brigham, whose roles include a recurring spot on General Hospital as well as appearances on The Voice and America’s Got Talent. Theater credits include Grease, Saturday Night Fever and Jesus Christ Superstar. As a Los Angeles studio singer, you can hear his voice on television and film projects. He has been performing with Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons since 2003.
Brother Brandon Brigham began singing at 8 and has been seen on The Voice, The Sing Off, and Jimmy Kimmel Live. He has opened for Joan Rivers and Jay Leno and has appeared on stage with Tony Bennett, the Beach Boys, Melissa Manchester, Pat Benatar and the Manhattan Transfer. He has performed with Frankie Valli since 2006.
Todd Fournier began his career as an entertainer on Norwegian Cruise Lines. He worked for Universal Studios and Disney and has appeared in Jesus Christ Superstar, Aida, Grease, Chess, Miss Saigon and Oklahoma. He is a veteran of several soap operas and has performed with Frankie Valli since 2002.
Landon Beard got his start in entertainment early when he appeared as soloist in a Kodak commercial at the age of 3. After receiving a BFA from Cal State Fullerton, he performed in the New York production of Altar Boyz, and has appeared alongside Josh Groban, Roger Daltrey and Eric Benet. He has been with Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons since 2003.
